Kim Summit Planned for Maximum Publicity

Sammy Stanley | 07 June, 2018, 22:58

The US may be considering the possibility of applying the Nunn-Lugar program to North Korea's denuclearization in the run up to the US-North Korea summit. He said "I think it's going to be a very fruitful meeting, I think its going to be an exciting meeting".

"I think it's probably going to be a very successful, ultimately a successful process", Trump said following the meeting.

The president said he was also optimistic about a normalisation of diplomatic relations with North Korea in the long term.

During their last meeting at Trump's Florida retreat in April, the U.S. president promised Abe to raise the politically sensitive abductions issue in any talks with Pyongyang.

Watch above, via Fox News. Hours earlier a senior North Korean official had questioned the value of the talks and said her country was just as ready to meet in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table.

Since the first inkling that a Trump-Kim summit could be on the cards, Japan has repeatedly insisted that Washington be mindful not to let its guard down with the nuclear-armed regime in Pyongyang. If they don't denuclearize, that will not be acceptable.

And what better way to get to know the North Korean dictator than Trump's favorite pastime: grabbing 'em by - sorry, golf. A summit of this magnitude typically takes place only after a deal is finalized, ensuring that the president arrives for a photo-op that can not go wrong.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the media that Trump receives daily briefings from his national security team.

Still Trump predicted that he'll know very quickly whether Kim is serious about dealing with USA demands. "This isn't a question of preparation, it's a question of whether people want it to happen".

The attorney said with the summit rescheduled, the USA has the upper hand.

"We are not quite certain if that is still the policy or whether by Trump saying take your time to North Korea he is indicated a phased, more methodical implementation", he said. I'll leave the rest for the president to work out because it's the president's meeting with Kim Jong Un.
